Weird morning. Near home, traffic was far lighter than it usually would be at that time of day. On the 401, things got ugly, due to a big accidnet closing multiple lanes westbound near winston churchill, which is the exit after mine on the highway. I got off early, and found the alternate routes also insanely packed, and then got trapped at an intersection with seperate left turn signal lights that had my group of left-turners miss an entire light cycle.
When I got in, the walk from the parking lot to the office was enough to have the poor air quality set off my mild asthma - by the time I got upstairs, I sounded like Darth Vader. During his death scene. I pulled out the inhaler, so now I can mostly breathe okay, but I have a splitting headache, my heart rate is up, and the twitchy feeling in my veins suggests that the blood pressure jumped up, too. Breathing's still not 100%, and I feel like crud. If I don't start to feel better soon, I'm going to go back home, assuming I'm safe to drive.
On the plus side; I went out for drinks with captainmushroom
last night at what the Toronto Star calls
"probably the most authentic Irish pub in the city".
Also, Zil and I are off to see Hellboy tonight. Hellboy! And apparently The Dark Knight actually lives up to the hype - the CBC's Jesse Wente (sp?) called it "not just the best superhero movie of the summer, but the best superhero movie of all time". Apparently Ledger's performance is amazing. I look forward to that, but I'm not going opening weekend.
